The majority of the donation, which represents 1% of the company’s turnover, has been allocated to OCEANTEE’s long-term charity partner the Marine Conservation Society.
1% for the Planet is a network of businesses, individuals and non-profit organisations collaborating to tackle the planet’s most pressing environmental issues.
When Yvon Chouinard founded 1% for the Planet with Craig Matthews, he described it as a rent for the use of the planet that all businesses should be paying as Ed Sandison, Founder of OCEANTEE explains.
The funds that the Marine Conservation Society has been given will contribute towards their mission to recover the health of the ocean. The ocean covers over 70% of our planet, provides more than half the oxygen we breathe, and absorbs nearly a third of our carbon emissions.
By 2030, the charity is calling for a third of our seas to be truly protected, so nature can recover; ocean pollution levels to show a clear downward trend and for fish stocks to be at sustainable levels.
